Better than solid gold, Bitches With Wolves commands you to surrender to the pack instinct, get loose and dance with animal abandon. Mainlining electro beats with a shot of pop sensibility, Bitches With Wolves will take you home, wear you out and leave wanting more.

Biography

Starting as a con to a club promoter at a party in London two years ago, Bitches With Wolves was born with nothing more than an eye set firmly on the stars, a good wardrobe, a gig date and a random song title.

Since that debut performance, Bitches With Wolves - a.k.a. James O' Neill and pack - has snowballed from playing open-mic nights in clubs to performing live in front of 6,000 people at this year's Oxegen festival. Along the way, Bitches With Wolves has supported a slew of diverse yet stellar artists including Fatboy Slim, Erasure, Datarock, Calvin Harris and Hercules & Love Affair to name but a few.

Musically, Bitches With Wolves mainlines electro beats with a pop sensibility with lyrics that sing of sin, joy and heartache. Darkly delicious, the end result is one that transports the listener to a place of cosmic and sonic escapism.

Following a successful summer in 2011 on the Irish festival circuit and with a debut EP scheduled for release in October, Bitches With Wolves continue to galvanise a solid and loyal fan base. Expect a return to the studio in October to complete work on an a debut album that will see an international release in Spring 2012.

Lyrics

Broken Hearts

Written By: James O'Neill / Tom Neville / Jay Bauer-Mein / David Sneddon

(Verse 1)
I had fire and desire roaring for you
It could not be contained
I could’ve burned this whole town down
Whoa-oh-oh-oh

Leopard looks went and took my freedom away
Could not be restrained
Now I’m out of love and I blame that on you
Oh whoa-oh-oh-oh

(Bridge)
You see through me
I’m no longer real
No longer real

(Chorus)
My broken heart, dancing alone at night
With darkened dreams, I’d run right out of sight
Broken heart, broken beats, broken words all I know
But you won’t get control
Disco owns my soul
Don’t come knocking round again

(Verse 2)
Empty touch and a guilty look betrayed you
Even though I knew
I swallowed the lie until you kicked me away
Whoa-oh-oh-oh

I couldn’t take anymore, living like your whore
I’ve built me something new
Cause I’m outta love
And I blame that on you
Oh whoa-oh-oh-oh

(Bridge)
You see through me
I’m no longer real
No longer real

(Chorus)
My Broken heart, dancing alone at night
With darkened dreams, I’d run right out of sight
Broken heart, broken beats, broken words all I know
But you won’t get control
Disco owns my soul
Don’t come knocking round again

(Middle 8)
C’etait en Avril
Nous etions dans la masion de verres, de tes emotions
Ton nuage eclipse mon soleil
Le rocher mate mon eouil
Deux ans ont passe
Je suis un esclave d’or sur un podium, dans le discoteque

(Bridge)
You see through me
I’m no longer real
No longer real

(Chorus)
My broken heart, dancing alone at night
With darkened dreams, I’d run right out of sight
Broken heart, broken beats, broken words all I know
But you won’t get control
Disco owns my soul
Don’t come kncking round again.

Tip Of My Tongue

Written By: James O'Neill / Robert Delaney

(Verse 1)
Oh I wait for night to come
When black glitter covers the sun
‘cause the day’s the same
All just fades to gray
But the dark, it owns my heart

Fallen gold and now it’s just me you
Dreaming up our plans, all that we gonna do
All indigo in this chaos, but we’re standing tough
Now you have me lets go fire it up

(Chorus)
You’re on the tip of my tongue
You got me going so insane, so insane
I know I can’t wait
You’re on the front of my brain
And you know that I won’t complan
You’re on the tip of my tongue
You got me going so insane, so insane
This certain feeling inside
I struggle so hard to find

(Verse 2)
I don’t know
Who we are
Where we’ll go
This is all that I do know
Head rush, taking over
And now I’m gone
Lost to startdust
Now fire me up cause I just can’t wait

(Chorus)
You’re on the tip of my tongue
You got me going so insane, so insane
I know I can’t wait
You’re on the front of my brain
And you know that I won’t complan
You’re on the tip of my tongue
You got me going so insane, so insane
This certain feeling inside
I struggle so hard to find

(Bridge)
You’re on the tip of my tongue
You’re on the nape of my neck
You’re on the tip of my tongue
You’re on the nape of my neck
You’re on the tip of my tongue

(Chorus)
Your on the tip of my tongue
You got me going so insane, so insane
I know I can’t wait
You’re on the front of my brain
And you know that I won’t complan
You’re on the tip of my tongue
You got me going so insane, so insane
This certain feeling inside
I struggle so hard to find

Oh I wait for night to come.

Hurricane

Written By: James O’Neill / Neil Thomas

HURRICANE

Don’t you lose control
Put your heat on hold
Just take a minute to let a deep breath in
Do we have to fight until there’s nothing left to win

Don’t be drawn into the storm behind your eyes
What can I do to make you realise

It’s just another hurricane
Throwing us upside down again
Our love remains
Baby don’t blow it all away
Let it crash and roar and tear on through the night
Just hold on until the darkness turns to light
It’s just another hurricane

You don’t seem to know
How far I would go
I would cross the raging seas just to bring you home
And if you don’t wanna be, you’ll never be alone

You don’t have to build a wall and run and hide
We can rise above it all if you decide

It’s just another hurricane
Throwing us upside down again
Our love remains
Baby don’t blow it all away
Let it crash and roar and tear on through the night
Just hold on until the darkness turns to light
It’s just another hurricane

It’s just another hurricane
Throwing us upside down again
Our love remains
Baby don’t blow it all away
Let it crash and roar and tear on through the night
Just hold on until the darkness turns to light
It’s just another hurricane

Strictly Pleasure

Written By: James O’Neill / Neil Thomas

STRICTLY PLEASURE

Verse 1:
A head for business
A body for sin
Only one thing I call you for
I got a three thirty I’m-a-squeeze you in
Leave your briefcase at the door

Bridge 1:
Working hours five to nine
But your putting in the over time
When the night turns into day
You know what I’m gonna say

Chorus:
You and I
Are strictly pleasure
So stay out of my business
After all this time
You should know better
Than to be up in my business
When I pull up outside
In the dead of night
You better be willing and able
Keep your hands off my heart
And stay out of my business

Verse 2:
Make me feel like a king
I’ll make you feel like a star
No negotions, you know the deal
Step out of my office
Step into my car
I’ll take you to heaven from behind the wheel

Bridge 2:
Working hours five to nine
Baby don’t cross the line
When the night turns into day
You know what I’m gonna say

Chorus;
You and I
Are strictly pleasure
So stay out of my business
After all this time
You should know better
Than to be up in my business
When I pull up outside
In the dead of night
You better be willing and able
Keep your hands off my heart
And stay out of my business

Middle 8;
No time for holding hands
Golden bands and wedding plans
I been down that road before
Love don’t live here anymore
This is how it has to be

Chorus:
You and I
Are strictly pleasure
So stay out of my business
After all this time
You should know better
Than to be up in my business
When I pull up outside
In the dead of night
You better be willing and able
Keep your hands off my heart
And stay out of my business!

Electric Love

Written By: James O' Neill / Andrew Bannister / Robert Delaney

Each and every night
I stalk the streets alone
I used to call you my own
Haunted by a hope I held inside
And that's why I don't settle
Oh no, not at night

I'm surrounded by robots
Dancing through galactic skies
They entice and seduce me with synthetic vice
Dead eyed desperate in the emotion
Fanatic with desperation
Please stop I'm bound with devotion

Chorus:
I'm looking for electric love
Techno from above
Ay-oh ay-oh
I feel it race all over me
And hard drive my every need
Ay-oh ay-oh
My heart each night it prays
As I move across this checquered maize
Techno from above
Looking for electric love
Ay-oh ay-oh

Lost, your heart's key is lost to me
Still I pray
That you'll be here beside me by day
Amber, hope is just an amber
But it burns through me forever
I'm calling out for my saviour

Chorus:
I'm looking for electric love
Techno from above
Ay-oh ay-oh
I feel it race all over me
And hard drive my every need
Ay-oh ay-oh
My heart each night it prays
As I move across this checquered maize
Techno from above
Looking for electric love
Ay-oh ay-oh

Looking for electric love
Techno from above
I'm looking for electric love
Ay-oh ay-oh

Hercules

Written By: James O'Neill / Andrew Bannister / Mark Healy / Robert Delaney

Ionian
Love of mine
Through every trial I take
Your heart I’ll never break (whoah)
I’ll never break your heart

My only one
For all time
Rest yourself assured
My kingdom is all yours (whoah)
Forever more

OH!

CHORUS
Raise up your hands
Get up and dance
Beside you I’ll guide you
All that you need
Is to call me Hercules
(Hercules)
Heart skips a beat
Don’t be discreet
Your hero beside you
All that you need
Is to call me Hercules
(Hercules)

Achilles
Ain’t got a patch on me
Despite my height here lies
A punch of might surmised
I’ll fight for you and I

Oh I take it to the street
Throwing shapes to every beat
An’ every hooker that I meet
Sees me falling at your feet
So rest your self assured
My kingdom is all yours

OH!

CHORUS
Raise up your hands
Get up and dance
Beside you I’ll guide you
All that you need is to call me Hercules
(Hercules)
Heart skips a beat
Don’t be discreet
Your hero beside you
All that you need is to call me Hercules
(Hercules)

Oh I’m aching for your love
Yes I’m earthquaking for your love
My back is breaking for your love
My knees are shaking for your love

CHORUS
Raise up your hands
Get up and dance
Beside you I’ll guide you
All that you need is to call me Hercules
(Hercules)
Heart skips a beat
Don’t be discreet
Your hero beside you
All that you need is to call me Hercules
(Hercules)
